she also had breakfast with joe biden yesterday morning. both meetings in a sense showed some degree of democratic unity in contrast to all the sniping between the republican establishment and the tea party in d.c. lately. what we can virtually be certain of that did not come up was a clinton connection to an investigation at the department of homeland security and some pretty complicated allegations about conflicts of interest and mismanagement of something called the e-5 visa program which specifically grants special visas to foreigner who's are willing to invest half a million dollars in the u.s., presumably to create jobs. here is the controversy now. a guy named allah hundred degree who runs that visa program has been nominated to being executive director at dhs overall. now that's in question. he intervened to help a company called gulf coast nun other than hillary clinton's brother rodham. partners and shares of virginia office building with another company called green tech which was started by terry mcauliff a very familiar name in democratic politics. he is running for gove
party, hillary clinton and joe biden. the rnc has been beating that drum when san diego mayor bob filner become embroiled in his own scandal righting here's the latest news on democrats war on women. the national republican senatorial committee picked up the narrative today running today on twitter soap operas, democrats struggle with their own war on women. they also wrote a blog post saying "democrats have absolutely no answer or strategy to combat their growing problem with women." just to set the fakes straight, in 2012, president obama beat romney among women by a margin of 1 points, a critical part of the party's victory. 66-44, that's a hell of a lead for a party that has a problem with women. the big question now is whether filner, weiner, spitzer could help close the gap. john feehery and nia-malika henderson. let me start with john on that to see if there is an argument to be made here. do you think wilner -- excuse me. weiner. i know a bunch of wilnors. sorry. i'm not talking about you guys. could you think weiner, do you think weiner is something that will travel? do you thin

thought okay, that acronym spot on. there are a wtf moments throughout that speech. >> my buddy joe biden, besides his penchant for just making stuff up? >> so, angela, she does have a big platform, and she is out there slamming the president every day. does this have any effect on his agenda? >> i don't think it has an effect on the practical aspect of him being able to push his agenda. i do think when it comes to whether or not his agenda will be supported by a broader base than moderate republicans and by the democratic party, yeah, it creates more of the frustrating type of washington, type of inside the beltway we're used to at this point. they again voted 40 times now to repeal obama care and are back home to out the this mess in town halls. talking about dingbats, i would encourage her to listen to man in the mirror by michael jackson. >> karen finney and angela rye, i'm going to leave it on that one. thanks for your time. have a great weekend. >> thanks, rev. >> and watch disrupt with karen finney, weekends at 4:00 p.m. eastern, right here on msnbc. >>> up next, friend or foe, i w
